Start your trip with a short Reykjavík city tour before heading north-west. Visit the Settlement Centre in Borgarnes and learn about the Viking Age and the Icelandic Sagas. In the afternoon, join a short hike up the Grábrók volcano crater from where you will have a perfect view over the region and its vast lava fields. Stop at the most powerful hot spring in Europe, Deildartunguhver where you will learn about geothermal energy. We continue to Hraunfossar, a unique waterfall that drains from under vast lava fields into a glacier river. Nearby is Barnafoss waterfall. Later this day enjoy Medieval Icelandic history at the cultural site in Reykholt, which was the home of the 13th-century writer, scholar and chieftain Snorri Sturluson, who wrote many sagas. Visit Snorri’s pool, one of Iceland’s most important cultural and archaeological sites.
